Sentencing wait for charity trick conman
11:00am Friday 6th September 2013 in News
Sentencing of a con artist who tricked firms into giving money to a non-existent cancer charity has been delayed.
David Solomon, 35, told businesses in Headington on November 13 last year he was doing a walk to raise money for “Cancer Relations” after the death of his father 15 years earlier and that the charity had helped his brother survive the illness.
He was due in Oxford Magistrates’ Court yesterday but will now be sentenced for three counts of fraud by false representation in November. He denied the charges but was convicted by District Judge Tim Pattinson last month.
Solomon, of Kimmeridge Road, Cumnor, will also be sentenced for another two counts of fraud and one of theft.
